September Goals

Well, I did NOT make as much headway on my goals this month. It’s always tough to get stuff done during the first couple weeks of school. I also spent most of last weekend dealing with a broken washing machine. Any old who, I did end up crossing lots of stuff off the list, but I also added a bunch to it too!

While trying to prioritize what to start making first for my first show of the fall, I read over my post from last year’s Art for Heaven’s Sake. After taking stock of the number of iPad/Kindle covers and Going Green totes, I decided to start by making some more convertible totes, because those sold really well at last year’s show. Of course, they take a long time to make, even when I’m sewing them “assembly line” style, so I cut out fabric for 6 and am hoping I didn’t bite off more than I can chew!

I spent a long day dyeing on Saturday – I used all but 2 of my large dyeing containers: where are the ironing fairies???
